The Map Room is part of the Society's neo-classical extension, which was commissioned in 1930. Its proportions mirror those of the original Lowther Lodge, built in the 1870s.
Decorated with portraits of explorers and a 17th century Chinese map of the world, it leads on to the garden terrace.
The Map Room is let with the Ondaatje Theatre, and can be used for catering for up to 120 people.
For conferences with higher numbers, catering also takes place in the Hall and the Education Centre.
The Map Room can be used as a reception room for up to 150 guests and is also suitable for dancing.
